She was torn because she loved ball gowns, and had always imagined herself getting married in a ball gown wedding dress. But, she felt like it would be completely inappropriate for the beach wedding she was planning. What do you think? Does a destination wedding mean that you should have a less formal wedding dress, or should you always go with your dream wedding dress? What if it were a local...

Bubbly Bride: Think Outside The Box When Searching For Bridesmaid Dresses!

by Azure
